There are lots of things to do in Uganda, the Pearl of Africa. The Lonely Planet has rated Uganda the world’s must-visit destination. Those already familiar with Uganda will no doubt concur with the wisdom of this rating, while those who have not yet been to the ‘Pearl of Africa’ may well be persuaded by the Lonely Planet’s description.
Tracking Chimpanzees in Kibale wildness everything starts at Kanyachu visitor’s center, all visitors have to be at the center at 7:30am for the safety briefing and grouped 8 people each group to track a single Chimpanzee family. The ranger guide leads a group of trackers into the jungle to search for chimps. Like gorillas, also chimp tracking is limited to children under the age of 12 years.
Uganda is a prime destination for gorilla tracking. It hosts mountain gorillas in two well protected national parks; Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Mgahinga Gorilla National Park. To meet these primates, you need to plan a safari into western Uganda. There are gorilla safaris available from either Kampala or Entebbe offered by several tour operators. These trips range from purely gorilla treks to safaris that feature other adventure activities.
